Please note that some new cubes when being used for the first few times may experience what is termed a "pop".

Pops are typically not considered a defect if the parts which come off can be reassembled by hand.

Good Cube, But Came A Bit Loose

It came pretty loose and clacky, but tightening it and adding 2 drops of DNM-37 fixed it. It is definitely my main, and for the price, you can’t beat it.

love it

The 3x3 layers feel like a regular 3x3 minus some corner cutting ofc because its a big cube but for a 5x5 it's great. I like the center layers but they get gummy quickly like any other big cube so if you've never had a big cube be careful not to over lube it I set it up with weight 5 on the springs and dnm and silk on the pieces, defo recommend for any skill level, 5x4 is such a fun solve

Great SpeedCube! Great for all levels of cubing.

I used to have a crappy budget 5 by 5 and I decided I wanted an upgrade. I bought this cube and compared to my old one the turning felt so smooth and effortless. It has almost an airy feel which I really like. With a bit of set up this is a great cube that can handle fast and somewhat rough turning. I would highly recommend this cube because it is an amazing cube, but also it is fairly cheap compared to others like the Valk 5. Another great feature of this cube is the feel of the plastic.It is very smooth and it grips very well. Overall a great speecube and I would highly recommend it.

As a beginner, I can't compare this to other cubes, but it turns freely and the magnets work well. I like it.

I suck at 5x5 but it’s actually amazing how it turns and it’s super fast
Probably the best 5x5 on the market

Broke out of the box💔 fixed it with help and I'm glad i did.

I had a bad experience out of the box. Bad QC i suppose. Had a side of the puzzle that couldn't be tensioned due to a defect in the threads in the core. When manufacturers make a great budget cube i suppose they have to find ways to save money to bring you low prices. Support fixed me right up. Got the replacement parts i needed. Assembled it with a new core and took the opportunity to lube it with Dignatas, weight 5 and mystic. First turns were great. It's a great cube. Blows my yuxin out of the water. I'm disappointed with how i didn't get a perfect product from the start but can't find it in me to take any stars from this stellar cube. I love the strength of the magnets.

Best 5x5 out there!

Good job YJ, I love this cube so much! It is super fast and flexible for a 5x5, super smooth and doesn't pop unless in turn super inaccurately, and great prices! I get amazing times on this cube and would highly recommend it, and get a premium upgrade if you have the money but if you don't you're going to get a amazing cube anways!!! Five star for me!!
